The sites in Richmond VA and Birmingham AL provides coverage on the East Coast and the Southeastern part of the country. Our Corporate Headquarters along with Grand Rapids MI facility provide coverage for the Midwest.

Our newly relocated Salt Lake City, UT facility provides ATR with coverage in the North Western United States.

Each of our locations are independently R2, ISO and OHSAS Certified each year by an outside independent auditing body and can be verified on the SERI Website. Our certification status is a differentiator for ATR versus many of our competitors that will only certify one location and advertise that they are an R2 Recycling Company. Additionally all locations are ITAR Registered and are on the GSA Schedule with the exception of the new Las Vegas, NV facility which will be completed by year end 2019.
